Darren Aronofsky has had a diverse career with movies like Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Wrestler and Black Swan but his latest definitely seems to be his biggest and most epic movie with Noah. Based on the biblical story, Russell Crowe plays Noah, who is given a vision by God that the world will be destroyed in a flood and Noah is to build an ark and collect two of every animal to repopulate the Earth. Jennifer Connelly co-stars as Noah’s wife, Naameh, and Emma Watson is Noah’s daughter, Ila, while Anthony Hopkins seems to be in full on Odin mode as Methusaleh. Ray Winstone plays the main villain, a king who wants access to Noah’s ark by any means necessary. The visuals look absolutely jaw dropping and I like the level of realism and drama they are adding to what has essentially become a fairy tale. The movie is out in March and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
